Hello, since migrating from Chrome to Firefox, I have used the Import Wizard to successfully transfer over my bookmarks and history, but I just can't seem to get my logins/passwords over. The wizard finishes saying that it successfully imported saved logins and passwords, but nothing shows up in the password manager. I am running Windows 10 64bit and Firefox is up to date. Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks

I'm trying to take off this "Extension (Tabliss)" tag on my url. I have followed the instructions down below from another Firefox support forum: https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/make-addressbar-text-extension-name-of-the-extension-shorter-or-hide/28026/3

The instructions I followed are listed below:

"Users can apply custom style rules to modify Firefox’s toolbar area by creating a userChrome.css file. This takes about 10 minutes so when you have time to take it slowly and carefully:

(1) Set up your chrome folder and userChrome.css file following the five six steps in this article:

https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html 45

I have a boring video there if you like demonstrations.

(2) This is the code to paste into the file. You can edit the file using Notepad or a better editor. Make sure to keep it in a plain text format with a .css file extension (not .css.txt).

See improved rule down in: Make addressbar text "Extension (Name Of The Extension)" shorter or hide

/*
   Hide Extension Name in the identity area unless
   hovered for half a second (updated for Fx80)
*/
#identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-labels,
#identity-box.extensionPage #identity-icon-label {
  visibility: collapse !important;
  transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out;
}
#identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-labels,
#identity-box.extensionPage:hover #identity-icon-label {
  visibility: visible !important;
  transition: visibility 250ms ease-in-out 500ms;
}

(3) Firefox should read the file at its next startup and apply it to every extension page you load."

Edit: So, yeah, I need help getting this tag off. I'm new to Firefox so it could be something obvious I'm missing. I have also tried CTRL+SHIFT+R to reload the page for changes and also closed and reopened my Firefox entirely.

Thanks in advance.

I need to disable this horrible translator that is now showing up on top of every page I visit, It keeps showing up even after choosing a translation or disabling translations for that language. That is probably a bug, but I don't want to wait for a fix, I need to be able to see the pages I visit completely, this thing prevents me from clicking buttons and and is really anoying.

This is the built-in translation feature since I do not use any translation plugins, and started showing up after an upgrade.

I have always had my browser set to ask me where to save anything I'm downloading, as you can see by the attached screenshot. However, every single file I have downloaded for the past 2-3 days has first gone into my Downloads folder instead, forcing me to re-download the file in order to get it into the correct folder. If this was for personal usage, I wouldn't care, but having to continually download business files is getting old very very quickly. Firefox has been my default browser for the better part of two decades. I really don't want to switch to Chrome or Safari just because Firefox won't let a power user customize their usage experience.

Hello, For no reason I can easily identify, the plus symbol labeled tab to open new tabs from the browser has disappeared. I can still easily use the right click of the mouse or the control t keyboard trick, but I would much prefer the convenience of the ever available and accessible plus tab option. Your help to restore this feature would be very much appreciated. I use a Dell pc laptop with Windows 365 and Firefox. Thank you, Milagra Tyler [email removed from public]

I had the same problem like the link below when I use firefox.

https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/tjxh7s/videos_freeze_when_window_isnt_in_focus/

So, did what the instruction says and it solved the problem regarding discord.

But, since I changed that setting, firefox doesn't remember my google login or dark skin settings of other websites (it was always automatically logged in when I use YouTube. Not like it remembers the password).

How can I solve it? I resetted firefox multiple times.

Information on how to add the Google 'Tasks' into Thunderbird Calendar: I have a gmail imap account using OAuth2 as Authentication Method.

File > New > Calendar, select 'Google Calendar' >  click on 'Next' choose or enter: gmail email address   > click on 'Find Calendars' Select 'My Tasks' and click on 'Subscribe'

You may be asked to enter password as per Oauth2 Authentication.

See image. It shows the selection available when you follow instructions. It shows where 'My Tasks' is located in the Calendar list. I selected 'My Tasks' and then clicked on 'Task'. Create the Task and save. Task is shown in Thunderbird and on the right side you can see the Task is displayed via the webmail access using a browser.
